Admissions (ADM)

Survey Component Overview:
The primary purpose of ADM is to collect basic information about the undergraduate selection process for entering first-time, degree/certificate-seeking students. This includes information about admissions considerations, admissions yields, and SAT and ACT test scores (if test scores are required for admission). ADM will be collected only from institutions that do not have an open admissions policy for entering first-time students.
